Well, in truth, you would not want to read the original. It was mostly just a text book about Florin and its history. In one part, there were 62 pages just on Florin's wonderful trees. If you love to read your school's history books then you can read the original but if you like The Princess Bride then... DONT READ THE ORIGINAL!!!!!

I am reading the Princess Bride right now. My teacher gave it to us as an assignment. I LOVE to read, but i did not want to read it at all. i started reading it and i Love it. iT IS one of my favorite books now.
Question: Is it true that S. Morgenstern does not exist? if so i am sooo sad. I was just about to go to the library and get the original.

I just finished the 25th anniversary edition of Mr. Goleman's "abridged" version of S. Morgensterns book "The Princess Bride" I must tell you I was absolutely taken with this book and couldn't put it down. I loved all the parts where he comes in and tells you what he's cut out and why and I was actually fooled I guess cause here I am writing after getting up at midnight (cause that's when I finished the book) to try and find the sequel; "Buttercup's Baby"

I guess i am not the first. I believed. I
looked. I did not find as planned. I guess you get your personal point across about "life not being fair." Good for you. I am sure glad that i never knew that until this. You are a very good writer. I hope that you are having a good laugh at those of us still in need of a hero. That, under any other circumstance would have been you. I guess you're right. It can always get worse.

I have spent YEARS of my life loving this book, and even went as far to ask the reference librarian at my big 10 university about finding a copy of the Morgenstern...she must have been in on the joke, as she informed me with a completely straight face that the library did have a copy, but I could not see it as it was an antique. DUH. Still love it!!

I am the real Princess Bride I was wondering along in the forest when all of a sudden a cantaloupe jumped out at me! Aughh I screamed but nobody heard me.

oh my goodness! i just found out that basically nothing in the princess bride is real! (i know, i was a little slow at figuring that out) I am pretty disappointed, though, i was really getting into the parts that talk about Goldman going to Florin, so i did some research online...."The Princess Bride" was still an awesome read, but I'm sad that it was not some extremely old book that was written one thousand years ago

I really do hope that Goldman writes the sequel; however, I'd rather he didn't if he chooses to kill off Fezzik. What did he ever do to anyone?
